Sorry, I should have been more clear. The part about gun registration was directed at Fstbttms.
As for the states rights, in education and (your gonna hate this, I know I did) the first ammendment, they made the decisions fed. here''s some bg info if you''d like.
While moraly I agree with the protection, I find it scary when the supreme court decides to interpret laws in a way that is expressly DENIED in the writing. When the Supreme Court empowers itself that way, the checks and ballances go away and we''re left at the mercy of a 9 man olgarcy. neep!
That being said, by finding fault (and voting and helping to campaign) in a manner that helps support positive change, I think I''m doing nothing less than my patriotic duty. I dont think that a disagreement with the way things are going is half as unamerican and destructive to our way of life as blind conformity (or blind rebelion)
That ALSO being said, I do have every plan of taking some more travels, starting in March as a matter of fact to see how things are run in the rest of the world.
So now sir, you and I may both have our respective cakes, and eat them too.
BTW, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanuka, Joyfull Kwanzaa, and have a downright groovy Ramadan
